Phil Thoburn 
Bsc Hons, Ceng, MCIBSE, MAPM,

Phil has gained his spurs the hard way. His experience and skills are founded in the many projects that he has worked on since first arriving in 1988. Starting with the bank of China building in Central, Hong Kong he then moved on to Taipei to work on the Far Eastern Plaza complex since when he has worked on a number of large and complex developments in South East Asia and the Middle East.


In 1996 he was instrumental in starting the Manila operation focusing initially on 2D CSD work and the provision of technical and management services for a wide range of Philippine and International clients. Starting in 2007, 3D/BIM technology was embraced as a natural part of driving forward a leading edge technology company.


Phil has also been instrumental in professionalising the provision of Testing and Commissioning services in the Philippines starting in 2002 when the gap in the market became apparent.


Working with the Forsspac team, Phil drives the creation of new offerings in integrated multidisciplinary design and technical facility management services, driving towards his goal of creating end-to-end solutions that deliver excellent ROI and balanced value to our customers.


Phil is committed to providing high quality, high integrity services.

"To infinity and beyond!"

Keith Brockley

Group Non-Executive Director


Keith has known the MEPF industry for almost 50 years starting out in the 1960’s, when it was simply M&E Engineering and/or Building Services. First draughting on the traditional 2D drawing board (Antiquarian and Double Elephant size amongst others, i.e. big) and then the first-generation CAD and 3D. He has been involved in probably every type of building project, from a 3 bed semi-detached house, through high rise offices, schools, hospitals, huge industrial estates, to full motorway lighting and signaling systems.


He specialised in MV/HV and also in contract trouble shooting, leading to full corporate trouble shooting roles.


He would be the first to admit that modern cutting-edge CAD and 3D systems, as employed throughout Forsspac for over 20 years, are both light years away from where he started in the industry. But, at the same time now an indispensable and somewhat almost unimaginable tool to the modern Engineers and Architects, putting Forsspac at the avant-garde world of MEPF design.

Keith is delighted to lead the Forsspac International Sales Team and take them through the current incredible innovative time and on to new horizons.
